I have KSDS file which has a key of length 20 and in the COBOL program i will get the input of length 12 of the key.
Now i have to read the KSDS file with the partial key of 12 and copy the rest of key to another KSDS file.

how can i do this?

Shouldn't this be in COBOL, not SMS & VSAM?

Use ACCESS DYNAMIC, then START KEY GE and then READ NEXT -- all of which is explained quite nicely in the COBOL Language Reference manual (link at the top of the page).
